5/13/2018

I am 67 years old, retired, over weight, have sore knees, and take several medications for high blood pressure. Dr. Watkins keeps close watch on my medications and tactfully encourages both exercise and diet to improve my health. He does it by summarizing what studies have shown in a non demeaning manner. Our last visit he highly recommended the "dash diet". I have purchased the book, have begun the diet, and hope to make some positive changes by next appointment in (4) months.
